Where to buy head-on shrimp and live dungeness crab?

MrF | Nov 11, 2009 04:16 PM

I'm going to be visiting San Francisco for Thanksgiving and I need some help fining some shellfish. I'm visiting from out of town, so I don't really know where the best fish markets are.

First of all, l need to find find shrimp with the head still on (you just cant make a good shrimp stock without shrimp heads). Where can I find a good fish marked that has head-on shrimp?

I also need to find some good, live crabs (Dungeness, of course). Where can I find the best combination of qulity and price. This will be for a seperate meal, so it doesn't necessarily have to be the same place I get the shrimp.

I am going to be staying near West Portal, but I am willing to travel for quality and/or a great price
